I am so happy to finally show you all the items I have been working on for my sister. To recap from my past posts, I have been planning a shower for my sister and have been crocheting a baby blanket, baby bag, hat, and bootie socks for my sister and her (soon to be born) son, Matthew, before I left for my trip to the Bahamas. The shower turned out great and she was very pleased with the items.
This tote bag was made with Caron Simply Soft yarn in a variegated yarn and ocean color. It has one button to loop over the top and I lined the bag with a light blue fabric covering a piece of pellon that gave it structure. I added a cute hippo applique to give the bag a baby feel and look.
The theme for the shower was zoo animals and so I made a monkey hat from Caron Simply Soft yarn in dk. brown and from Promo Fil yarn in taupe. The booties were made from Caron Simply Soft yarn in white and blue, and from Bernat yarn in a light green shimmer.
